Conduct research (remember to use the Resources links) on the influences of Europeans and First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples on each other. Look at items such as the fur trade (seal, beaver, buffalo), marriage, survival of the Europeans, exchange of goods (natural medicines, sugar, rifles, metal goods). These are just suggestions - there are many more examples of how the cultures helped and supported each other and it is expected that you will include some of them in your assignment).
